Moody

I'm in the mood with all the snow...and I put up my kitchen Christmas lights today.  Just a thing I do every year around the window by the sink.  I irritate my friends because they think it is tacky.....I know they don't say it...but I know they think it is not tasteful.....heh why do you think I keep on doing it?  I love it.  I spend 90 percent of my life in there anyway.  So there.  And I don't take them down until February...haaaaaa on them.  I won't have a kitchen window in the new house....but I will find a place for my little strand of brightly colored lights to annoy them.

I don't understand why some people don't like colored lights.  Everyone nowadays wants the bland white lights.  I fell for that last year when I got a pre-lit Christmas tree and it broke my heart.  The tree looked stupid.  I gave the Christmas tree away to a family that didn't have one last week when I was getting all of the stuff out of the basement.  I'm pretty sure they didn't care about the lights...they wanted the tree for Christmas.
 My home now...and my new home...will be forever...the following.
I will never be the one that tries to make my house look like a magazine cover.  My  house will always be real.  And ... no you don't have to take your shoes off at the door either.  You will always know that when you come to my house you will feel welcome and not intimidated because it is new..unless you have deer shit on your shoes!!  It will be a home just like we have except newer.  Where you can park your ass. Have some good food and talk. And oh yeah..wine..lot's of that.  Yes we will have coffee and tea should you request that...

I used to do a lot of entertaining  but as the years went by and with working full time it all went to shit.  I still had family suppers here....but it was hard when I was working.  I am really looking forward to this year...still in this house to make the last Christmas suppers.  The one where we have to drag our older 93 year old Tante  Tina up the stairs...I hope she lives until next Christmas. It will be smooth sailing...because we won't have any stairs. She loves her Baily's Irish Cream....big time...and I love her too. Tanta....hang on........one more year...I want you to see the new house.  Tante is a pistol.  She is so vibrant and it's just like talking to your best friend.

I have multi colored lights outside, but I do love my clear lights on my tree--1,000 clear lights. It just sparkles and gleams and I like it. Why won't your kitchen have a window over your sink area? I couldn't live having to stand at the sink and stare at a blank wall. Gotta have a winder to look out of as I toil away in there.

I like color lights. I am curious, too, why didn't you put in a window in your new house under the sink? Oh well, it is your new house !! :) I know it will be spectacular !! :)

Good for your Tante Tina - sounds like my kind of girl. I hope she lives a long, long time and gets to visit in your new house. :)

The island where I will be doing all my prep work at the sink etc. faces two huge floor to ceiling windows in the family room so I will have a lot to look at. Plus my patio door is just to the right of it.
